Trivia

In the 1934 episode "Punch Drunks", Moe orders burnt toast and a rotten egg. Curly then asks why, so Moe says he has a tape worm, and that's good enough for it. 5 years later in the 1939 episode "Three Sappy People", that gag is repeated except that Curly orders burnt toast and a rotten egg. Moe then asks why, so Curly says he has a tape worm, and that's good enough for it. See more »

Notable for a particular car seen in the short
2 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this great Stooges short we see a rare treasure indeed - worth many thousands of dollars today - a Springfield, Massachusetts-built 1928-1931 Rolls Royce Phantom I with left-hand drive. The car is an unusual one, in that the coach-builder apparently built the body into somewhat of a cabriolet - the top is longer than that of a roadster, but shorter than a full phaeton. The car appears to have only two doors, the normal Phantom II wire wheels have custom complete color-coded wheel covers, and the car is painted an unusual color (not black). Having built many detailed models of this chassis with several body styles, the example in this Stooges short makes it a treasure beyond the great humor that made seeing it possible.
